It looks like Sony and Activision’s deal about Call of Duty DLC seems to cover full on DLC map packs only not micro DLC. Today, the Black Market received an update with all new items (camos, gear heads, and more), and Activision will bring Call of Duty Points to Black Ops 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the same time. Technically, Call of Duty Points and new gear is considered “DLC.”

Last year, with Advanced Warfare, all new micro items (including new gear sets and weapons that were added into the Advanced Supply Drops) were available first on Xbox platforms, then hit PlayStation Network and PC 30 days later. With Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, all new camos and micro items were able first on Xbox platforms as well.

This seems to suggest that Sony only has full DLC map packs first on the PlayStation platform, but all other content will be coming to all platforms at similar time.

Thus far, all of Sony’s big marketing for Call of Duty has only been promotingPlay Map Packs 30 Days Early Only on PlayStation.” It is very clear about map packs, while Xbox’s advertising for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was “all add-on content is available first on Xbox.

Looks like Xbox One and PC gamers will only have to wait for the four DLC packs next year, not micro DLCs.

    First. And this kinda sucks.

    • CoDforever

      Exactly. I really wanna make the xbox users felt exactly what we’ve felt the past several years.

      • Felipe Rios

        Because it was the Xbox users fault ps4 users got DLC later.

        • Jim Goggins

          That has to be the single dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever heard. If that was true, then where is my check from Activision? By your logic, it’s YOUR fault that I don’t have DLC 1st this year.

          • CoDforever

            He was with you lmao

          • Jim Goggins

            I see that now. Lol but seriously, you wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve seen things like that and the people be absolutely serious about it.

          • Felipe Rios

            I know! I was being sarcastic (I know its hard to tell) lol I agree with you!

          • Jim Goggins

            My apologies.

          • Felipe Rios

            It’s cool bro. Sorry I deceived you lol

        • CoDforever

          I never said it was .. I just want you guys to feel what we feel when you took it for granted ..

          • Sal

            You’ve been drinking that good stuff all day haven’t you.

          • CoDforever

            want some?

          • Sal

            Nope

          • Jim Goggins

            Took it for granted? Me, never. I think it’s just bullshit in general to make one platform wait a month, because the other threw a shit load of money at the publisher.

          • CoDforever

            Yeah but you dont just how BULLSHIT it felt until your the ones finally get stuff 1 month later

          • ItzSikh

            I don’t get the same feeling you had since I got both consoles. hehehe

      • Jim Goggins

        Why hate on Xbox users? I’m not happy about any exclusivity deal… Xbox or ps4. The the should be directed at Activision and their greedy corporate asses.

        • Keshav Bhat

          This right here confuses me. What greed? Activision is a business. Sony is a business. Sony walks up to Activision with a huge amount of money for DLC first, which business in this planet would say no to money?

          • ItzSikh

            but ATVI are really greedy, call it business or not but look at Destiny and how much they screwed over a ton of players with their stupid deals and also AW ASD’s.

      • Scott

        Who cares

      • TheNuGawd

        What are you talking about realistically you have only had to wait one year. Which was aw only since no one liked ghosts for next gen. And AW stuff was stupid. Yeah ps players have had to wait buuuut ps3 just wasn’t good for call of duty. The ps4 controller finally makes sense for COD where the ps3’s did not. That’s realistically if you truly loved COD you went to 360 and if you didn’t have a burning passion for it you stayed with PS3.

        • Victor

          Not to back up as a sony fan or anything (sister has a xbox and I love playing on it) but there wasn’t anything wrong with playstation 3 controllers for cod, I get it that some people aren’t used to the joysticks so they found it harder to use, but after playing on playstation 3 and xbox 360 I played at the same level on both consoles.

          PS

          You can understand why ps4 users are relieved, I don’t think that if any consol gets something early its good, but its some poetic justice that now xbox users have to wait..

        • CoDforever

          What Mw2-Ghosts dlc? all of it was xbox first

      • Joshwoocool

        Your logic is flawed,oh also great b8 m8.

        • CoDforever

          Hey man, I agree this is a good thing, but theres nothing about us ps users feeling better is there haha

      • Stealthninja808

        Why is it XBox user’s fault? GTFO Why do we have to suffer for Activision’s poor business practices? I’ve always been sympathetic about this, but wth?, ur just being hypocritical. If u didnt like it to begin with why are u accepting it now? These are multi-million dollar deals here: its going to take a lot of persuasion to stop timed exclusivity and you are not helping.

      • Hanzou Urushihara

        I’m a PC user and if you said that, i must be hate both Xbox and PS user now

        • CoDforever

          you have mods coming tho, i would rather have that than any dlc at all

          • Hanzou Urushihara

            but i have to deal with one thing including with modding feature that is the cheater

          • Hanzou Urushihara

            i don’t like that, modding mean more hacking

          • CoDforever

            really? Dont know much about PC but I thought mod features allow to create custom zombies maps and what not

      • Keshav Bhat

        u wot? we want to move toward same release dates; this is pretty big. Microsoft locked it all down; Sony only took full map packs. This is a right step if a deal HAS to exist.

        • jordanxbrookes

          I agree, at least it’s a start in the right direction.

        • CoDforever

          I know its a good thing but feeling good about the roles being switched cant be a bad thing hahha

      • Logic Chief

        But only last year we got all addon early before aw it was only map packs just like you guys got

      • y u h8 xbox m8

        Us xbox usere did not do anything wrong it is not our fault that there are stupid contracts.

  • Sal

    Woot. ^_^

    YEA BABY thank god i want that butterfly knife now!

      I want the wrench to clonk nubs on the head with xD

      • Joshwoocool

        yes

      • Make a class to mimick the main character from Bioshock 1 now.

  • Aidan

    The butterfly knife is the greatest thing this game has seen.

  • ArtisanKnight

    I personally don’t give a damn since we still get zombies maps first. I never felt as if Treyarc’s made good dlc maps. Only zombies.

    • The Flash

      thanks for beta testing them for us.

      • Victor

        Lol, you say it like its a bad thing haha

      • ArtisanKnight

        Oh please, like you guys have been doing for years…lmao Bye.

        • The Flash

          i know, Die Rise was complete dog shit when it first came out for Xbox, well who am I kidding, it kinda still is. But the amount of bugs it had/has was a joke, so many downs from the stupid slide and elevators, if you playing maps first means we get a more polished product upon release then i am in

          • After BO1 besides town zombies became overconvoluted trash.

            It’s kinda odd how SH made zombies ( not by alot, but alittle ) more enjoyable than treyarchs.

          • The Flash

            what i dont like about BO3 zombies so far, is that there are no survival maps for SoE, thats one thing Tranzit did have. And BO2 did have MOTD, Buried and Origins, 2 of which had grief you could play, BO3 has none of that.

          • ArtisanKnight

            I mean, look at the updates speed black ops 3 has had so far. If they’re are bugs, then they’ll be patched by the next day. Shoot, as I’m writing this, Blops 3 just had another update lol.

          • The Flash

            For zombies they tend to patch anything that could be OP and fun ASAP, but anything that gets us killed they take forever to fix if at all. BO2 Die rise, everyone could get the sliquifer, they patched that the same day of release for 360, but the slides that got us killed every time they didnt patch at all till after MOTD came out and at that point who’d want to go back and play die rise.

          • ArtisanKnight

            Lol that’s true, and stupid…

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Were you beta testing Zombies maps for PlayStation users, by your logic? What an asshole thing to say.

        • The Flash

          yes we were

  • TheGamerBeast

    THANK GOD THAT’s HOW IT SHOULD BE

  • Ryan Collewijn

    well this is something new atleast everybody can enjoy the new weapons at the same time so everyone can play with it and don’t be like booh xbox sucks booh ps sucks stop with the goddamn console wars if you are a player just play don’t make arguments about it thats just a waste of time now if you will excuse me i have to rack up some cod points

    • Tuby

      The picture omg wtf

      • Ryan Collewijn

        tuby i don’t see you showing a picture hmm

  • YoungMurf

    Would really like to see the end of this exclusivity thing for CoD. Just makes for immature ‘console war’ rows that never seem to end. Doesn’t matter what console is superior as long as you enjoy playing it, right?

    • FazalGaming

      In terms of Call of Duty (Except from Sony’s map pack DLC) no console is superior, they are both EXACTLY the same.

      • ItzSikh

        they really are the same no big difference at all but these little kids be bitching too much

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          No big difference in what? The PS4 and Xbone’s GPU/RAM gap is pretty big.

          • ItzSikh

            yh but they both have ups and downs

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Multiplats are irrefutable. In 9 times out of 10 of situations, the PS4 has stronger multiplats, unless there’s a porting problem.

          • ItzSikh

            still doesn’t matter cuz i’m not playing for graphics most of the time since that isn’t what a gamer seeks for and really there isn’t much of a difference in both, trust me I have them both.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            “Trust me, I have them both” doesn’t really validate anything. You could still be biased because you have both consoles. It’s not really rocket science. Your logic of “I’m not playing for graphics most of the time” doesn’t really validate “both consoles are the same”, because it’s not something you look for. We can’t really confirm anything if we don’t buy two copies of the same game, so I’ll repeat myself; the consoles aren’t as similar as they may seem, and how much better multiplats are should be part of the decision-making process of console purchases. Graphics may not be “everything”, but they do justify a purchase, and the exact same thing happens on PC on a broader scale.

          • ItzSikh

            well if I want to play for graphics I’ll go on PC because obviously PC is going to have better graphics than both and also I’m not biased about the consoles, I know PS4 has better graphics than X1 but the X1 has good qualities too (which I can’t name since I forgot what it had) but I still bum lick them both more than PC, overall I do understand what you are saying but in my eyes I just don’t see any difference.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I guess we’ll just agree to disagree, then. I see where you’re coming from, as well.

          • darren

            And how exactly can one tell this is superior to the other? Thanks to digital foundry, everyone thinks they can actually tell the difference between one and the other, which I’ve seen a video from ign/some similar site, where they hooked up both, gave each console a 3rd party controller. 7 out of 10 times, people said, “Oh, this is the PS4.” Only to find out it was the One. So in day to day use, you’re not gonna be able to tell the difference. I mean, can anyone sit there, and miss those 180 pixels?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            On a 1080p television, I’d be able to tell easily. There’s a huge detail difference. Notice the difference in Star Wars Battlefront in regards to 900p vs. 720p. It’s pretty big. Any image that’s upscaled looks crappier on a 1080p TV.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And my best example of this is retro games on 1080p TV’s. People have to play them on standard definition TV’s.

      • Myth

        Honestly, in almost everything they’re the same. Console War is purely personal preference. I personally play on Xbox One but I have both consoles. They both have their downfalls and their benefits.

        I am glad though that it seems only DLC Packs are going to be exclusive. One step further to getting rid of that, thought it was dumb that Xbox even got ASD additions a month before PlayStation. Just promotes toxicity and hatred within the community… Something WE DO NOT NEED MORE OF.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          How are they the same? They’re only the same in architecture.

          • Myth

            There is no noticeable differences between the two consoles. Hardware differences are slim. You’ll see minor graphical difference, but let’s be honest if you’re wanting graphical superiority why’re you even getting a console?

            They do the same thing, there’s no huge benefit to one or the other. Sitting here saying “X is better!!” is nothing but personal preference. All the hate Xbox One gets is just overly dramatic, as with PS4. They’re both consoles, they’ll both play the games released on the console…

          • MichiganerE

            And in the end, they’re just plastic boxes.

      • Thomas the Tank(no)swag

        Not exactly the same, but the differences aren’t noticeable unless youre looking really closely.

        • FazalGaming

          Yeah, PS4 has a little better hardware than Xbox One but unnoticeable most of the time.

          • Cookin’ by the book

            400 more cores on a GPU doesn’t make a noticeable difference? Does that mean my R7 250 is just as powerful as a R7 260?
            /s

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That’s at the fault of the developers putting near-parity on their games. Factually speaking, on paper, the PS4 is quite a ways more powerful than the Xbone, and 1080p vs. 900p (and 4k vs. 2k vs. 1080p) is a pretty [decently] steep difference.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        No they’re not.

        • FazalGaming

          Yes

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Elaborate, because the PS4 vs. Xbone’s GPU/RAM gap is pretty steep. They’re only similar by architecture and standard features.

    • Buruck Obuma

      TBH I’ve seen the console war die down a lot over these months.

      • ItzSikh

        it has

    • tuby

      its al about money. They try to please there stakeholders.

  • Logic Chief

    I feel for people with poor download speed on ps4 me on xbox we got the same update ps4 is 2.8 gigs well xbox is around 1gig took me all night to do that 1gig. would had taken days on ps4 for me xbox is a beast at compressing files sony needs to pick up some things that harddrive fills up fast.

    • FazalGaming

      PS4 will be slow at downloading, pause it and resume, it had 57 mins left and I paused and resumed and it went all the way down to 3 mins.

  • Koolz

    Well, I was a retard to think everyone would be happy to get micro-DLC at the same time. This really shows no matter what, there will always be console wars…

    • GinsuVictim

      All it took was the words “Sega does what Ninten-DON’T” and we’ve been at it ever since.

  • Skillreks

    I really like this. less exclusivity. map dlc is fine.

  • ToonToons22

    As if PlayStation users getting DLC map packs first wasn’t enough, now they have to go bash Xbox for getting too much. I thought everyone getting micro DLC’s would make people happy that there’s less exclusivity. I couldn’t have been any more wrong.

    • NOVA_POLARIS

      I WOULD have been happy if we got the mirco items in AW at the same time… I mean Xbox got every little item an entire month early. It was BS having to wait an entire month for items and guns since they weren’t even DLC! If they would have been fair and to give that stuff to us at the same time then I would be very happy that Xbox gets micro items at the same time but since they didn’t I say make them wait, at least for one game.

      • ToonToons22

        Don’t get me wrong, but I absolutely HATE it when any system gets anything before everyone else. That goes for PlayStation and Xbox. But people are acting as if it is the fault of the gamer, when it’s really the fault of the corporations that make these deals in the first place. In the end, exclusivity turns every gamer into a victim, and ruins all the fun for everyone but the big corporations, who end up capitalizing on it.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Well at least it’s some equality. Would still like there to be no exclusivity though, but this is a start.

    • FazalGaming

      You know no exclusivity will never happen right? As long as there is money to be made, Activision will be milking it.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Well it’s happening right now for MicroDLC, it’s only a matter of time.

    • ItzSikh

      if they have no exclusivity deal then they should also do cross platform MP.

  • LOL good

  • ColonelBazz

    I alwyas played games on PS and I disliked the idea of early dlc etc. Now it’s a PS4 deal….. I still dislike it xD just everyone at the same time. Especially Xbox and PS as they pay the exact same price.

  • FazalGaming
    • ToonToons22

      That rainbow camo on the Man-O-War looks freaking awesome. Do you know the name of it by any chance?

      • CoDforever

        The one in the thumbnail? Its called sunshine camo

        • ToonToons22

          Thanks. I think I might actually have that one.

    • banerising

      Some of it looks as silly as AW’s offerings, but I really enjoyed AW and didn’t mind the gear. I’m loving BO3 so I won’t mind the silly stuff.

      • BrandonTr

        Its good to see someone like AW even when Black Ops 3 is out.

        • jooker-jr

          Tried to play AW ( since I haven’t got bo3), the game is so dead, zombies laugh at it.

    Ffs. I got aids from this comments section.
